Earlier in the week we mentioned that Samsung and Microsoft were in tussle over Windows Updates. It appears Samsung gave up and have agreed to release patches via Windows Updates to allow their laptop users get security updates automatically. They released an official statement:
“Samsung has a commitment to security and we continue to value our partnership with Microsoft. We will be issuing a patch through the Samsung Software Update notification process to revert back to the recommended automatic Windows Update settings within a few days.”
Facebook is putting together an algorithm that can scan a photograph and look for many other physical clues. This means it will be able to recognize who you are, even when you’re face isn’t showing in a picture. The algorithm probably takes into account body features like hair, clothing and other factors. Surprisingly, it’s already proving to be accurate.
It was tested with almost 40,000 images taken from Flickr, and the system was able to recognize people with an 83% accuracy. Amazing!! or Scary?
